Iptables is a powerful firewall utility available for Linux-based operating systems. It is a user-space utility program that allows a system administrator to configure the IP packet filtering ruleset of the Linux kernel firewall, implemented as different Netfilter modules. Iptables provides the functionality required to filter, manipulate, and prioritize network traffic.
To install iptables on Ubuntu 18.04, you can follow the steps below:
Open a terminal window.
Update the package lists for upgrades and new package installations by running the following command: sudo apt update

During the installation process, you will be prompted to confirm the installation. Type "Y" and press Enter to proceed.
